Welcome to Building on Success.

What works for Māori learners, and why


Kia ora. In this section of the site, you can find practical information and resources to support Māori learners. All the resources are available from the Ministry of Education and New Zealand education sector sites.

We have organised the content collections using a “layers of influence” approach. These “layers of influence” shape the conditions in which Māori learn and can have an impact on learners enjoying and achieving educational success as Māori. The layers are: the Crown, iwi, whānau, school leaders, teachers and students.
